About Us


About us Tasmania Marine Centre 595x241

Longford is located in Central Tasmania, approximately 20 minute drive south of Launceston.

Tony Cauchi purchased this site in 1978, and remains the owner/manager.

Initially a successful mechanical workshop and service station, his love of waterskiing, waterski racing and power boat racing sowed the seed for the development of the marine business, with the junction of the South Esk and Macquarie Rivers on our door step, and boat ramp only 200 metres away.

In the 1980s, Tony commenced selling Stephens Inboard Ski Boats, and Tohatsu Outboards to local fishermen. In 1993, Tony sold the first SeaDoo PWC in Tasmania, these initial dealerships moved the focus to marine within the business, along with the expansion in retail and showroom space.
The site continues to expand, with a new workshop and development of under-cover marine display areas. We remain independent operators of the Service Station, under BP branding.
